The Ivy House is a Grade II listed public house at 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London.
It was designed by the architect A. E. Sewell in the 1930s for Truman's Brewery.
It was originally known as the Newlands Tavern, and has many original features including a curved bar and timber panelled walls. It was one of the major pub music venues in South London during the mid-1970s pub rock boom, with acts including Ian Dury, Elvis Costello, Joe Strummer and Dr. Feelgood. The pub was later renamed the Stuart Arms, before becoming The Ivy House. It is listed by Southwark London Borough Council as an asset of community value.
The Ivy’s House has been used as a set for many films including the 2015 Kray Brothers biopic Legend.


In recent years the Ivy House has once again emerged as a live music venue, and is home to Neil March's Demerara Records monthly event Vanishing Point.

  • I am told that the pub is run by a co-ownership of locals, what a beautiful project. The events and live music is a fantastic touch to the place. Adding the pleasant and friendly service you can definitely enjoy a pint here.
  • Really nice and welcoming pub, the food is nice and wholesome. They accommodated our family turning up for a wake (without prior notice) and the venue was just perfect. I returned a few days later for a burger and it was very tasty! Worth a visit for any reason, even a coffee stop.
